ShowStoppers Musical Theatre for Youth
Since 1993, ShowStoppers has been producing high-quality shows featuring teens and children in Santa Barbara. The focus of their program is to teach youth about all aspects of musical theatre. Young performers of all skill levels are welcome, and no previous experience is required. By selecting productions featuring large cast shows, all cast members enjoy the opportunity for featured parts, lines, solo or small group songs. The ShowStoppers program offers an enriching and rewarding experience.
Showstoppers Musical Theatre is a non-profit organization committed to providing quality youth theatre in Santa Barbara. Their goal is to make the performing arts accessible by encouraging participation, volunteerism and outreach. We strive to increase opportunities for youth to engage in all aspects of theatre.
